EVENT DETAILS

IMPACT

We're learning how to keep our environment clean!

About the cause: Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues we face. The rapid increase in the production of disposable plastic products has become nearly impossible to handle.

Plastic trash has become so ubiquitous it is projected that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. And sadly only 9% of the world’s plastic is recycled.

About the event: Gain valuable knowledge on plastic pollution while learning tangible solutions!

Join us for the live event to learn about Plastic Oceans, to connect over current ideas and solutions for reducing our own plastic waste.

CARE FOR OUR PLANET

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
